It’s Like Lollapalooza But Better

by Elizabeth Askew

Ronald Reagan is still alive and breathing and administrating, if nowhere but in the minds of desperate conservatives. Even young conservatives have Reagan Creationism Syndrome, and will be exhibiting the symptoms of it en masse at Reaganpalooza, a celebration of the “the man, the legend” at the Hawk and Dove on Saturday, February 28th.

The party is a great opportunity to communicate with conservatives in a venue other than RedState comments. Also, it is a Known Fact that Republicans are hotter than Democrats, so it may be the only chance to see attractive humans in Democratically-controlled DC for two-plus years.

The event is part of the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference being held at the Omnishore Hotel in DC. Every Republican (except Sarah Palin!) not currently serving jail time is scheduled to speak at CPAC, making the cost of registration absurdly high.

However, as far as Facebook is concerned, the admission to the Hawk and Dove for the Young Conservative Coalition-hosted Reaganpalooza is only $5! It’s a small price to pay for the possibility of hobnobbing with the likes of Ann Coulter and Rick Santorum. Hurry up and RSVP, Authur Brooks would want you to.

I was slightly bummed to be leaving DC after seven months to go home to Atlanta, but this event really improves my outlook.

OK, I went through all the posting on the wall and there were a couple of guys I’d hit, but not worth the trip to DC

To celebrate their family values, every participant gets an honorary divorce from Jane Wyman.

I like how it’s co-hosted by “the young.”

GlennBecksFelch February 19, 2009 at 5:43 pm

aw…. remember when Reagan saved us from balanced budgets and fuel efficient cars? Those were the days!

Isn’t a Zombie Reagan conference kind of … i don’t know … morbid? I mean are there going to be seances? Reanimated corpses to talk to? Discussions about how it is imagined he would have done things now based on a legend of what he did 30 years ago? well, it’s their booze.

Will Ron Jr. and Patty Davis be doing family values workshops?

They finally got close to ‘Dad’ at his funeral.

He’s alive! He’s alive!
God has sent him back to save the republican party from its sins. The main sin being they lost the election to a bla…

What can I say? If the roof caved in, the world would be a better place.

The ‘Hawk and Dove’? Isn’t there a ‘Self-Righteously Paranoid Bar & Grill downtown? And the dress code is pretty severe as are the doormen.

DangerousLiberal February 19, 2009 at 7:23 pm

Please, don’t use words that sound like “nob” and “santorum” in the same sentence. That is, unless that’s your sort of thing, in which case, carry on.

Are these young GOP pricks going to wear Izod shirts and Members Only jackets? Maybe someone can round up a Thompson Twins cassette. Buncha pussies.

If you don’t count your immortal soul- whooops, these are Republicans…. never mind

Baron von Hobo February 19, 2009 at 7:57 pm

So, the Republicans are throwing a party for Reagan in SE…. Irony!

No welfare queens, please.

[re=247620]GlennBecksFelch[/re]: saved us from balanced budgets, energy efficient cars, and… solar panels, too!

Wonder if all these young ‘conservatives’ remember their parents having a party when Reagan had the solar panels removed from the White House? stand up and cheer!

snif, I haz a sad.

Will the Hawk and Dove be hosting a Michael Milkenpalooza and Jerry Falwellpalooza any time soon?

I’m assuming most of the attendees are actually too young to have lived during the Reagan administration. The obsession with him is kinda like the novelty Mao propaganda decor that one can buy. (Full disclosure: I have plenty of novelty Mao items and understand that it is the political equivalent of a faux-hawk).

CPAC is in town? that explains all the transvestite hookers …

This just makes me excited about the upcoming FDRpalooza! Oh, wait, no, we’re not having that. Because that would make us creepy, weird and deeply pathetic.
